Winter Colour

I woke at 5am this morning and thought stuff this and pulled the duvet up and woke up again at 7.

No snow I see. I wandered over to Hatfield Forest. The birds were singing, 'peckers were drumming and Blue Tits displaying. The Grebes were swimming together and amongst the many Mallards, Pochard and Tufties were a Shelduck and a lovely male Mandarin.

So where now? Oh yes I mentioned a trip to Anglesey Abbey. The car park was packed!! Anyway it's February 2nd and the gardens were looking rather nice.

Sounds like a very rewarding visit. Great pictures as well! And all those lovely snowdrops, helleborus and other flowers. (Not that I'm jealous at all of course - heaven forfend!)

Hooray, you took your camera! Well one, the pictures are gorgeous. The silver birches look as though they have been washed, such a contrast to their surroundings. I feel far more hopeful now that spring is about to be sprung!
